Avicii Covers Nina Simone Hit 'Feeling Good'

(Radio.com) Avicii is moving forward by looking back. While fans wait patiently for his full-length follow-up to the genre-shaking 2013 album, True, Avicii has offered up a brand new song that's actually a cover of "Feeling Good," a classic made famous by Nina Simone with her version released in 1965.

The track opens with an unnamed female vocalist dramatically singing the opening lines before the slow-burning beat drops with horns, finger-snaps and old fashioned pianos.

Sure to be a slow-dance favorite, the sultry tempo is hardly what one would expect from an EDM superstar. Given Avicii's track record of changing the game by challenging dance music fans with the unpredictable ("Hey Brother," "Wake Me Up"), don't be surprised if other artists eventually follow suit.

There is still no word on when Avicii will release that second album, but if this Nina Simone cover is any indication, fans should expect the unexpected. Check out the track here.
